Super Neighborhood and Comfortable Accomadation

  • 5 of 5
Just enjoy this great location on the other side of the Arno. The apartment is in fine shape
and has everything you might want in. Someone obviously lives here at times and it has lots of extra equipment and accessories. The bedroom is large and has lots of close space.
The kitchen is lighted by the sun with a couple windows and even has clothes line outside to hand your things after a wash. We cook breakfast each morning and everything worked perfectly. The neighborhood is the real plus as it is full of character, shopping, rest., and bars. Polite Vechhia is nearby as are two other bridges to get you back in the action. It's an easy walk up the hill to Pittti Palace and some great views.

Wonderful Apartment in Florence

  • 5 of 5
Quiet, bright, unusually attractive, convenient, and spotlessly clean. The apartment is thoughtfully supplied with soap, paper goods, and other basics. The bed is comfortable, the towels are thick, the closets are large. The kitchen is fully functional and nicely appointed. The water is fully hot, and the internet worked flawlessly for us. There is not only a washing machine, but also a clothes line (!) and pins (!!) - and perhaps best of all, good reading light in the living room (!!!). I agree with the reviewer who thought the apartment actually better than the pictures suggest.

While there was more than enough space for my husband and me, I would hesitate to recommend it for more than a couple. There is a sofa bed, which when extended, would take up most of the living room.

Francesco is personable and courteous. He was in the apartment to greet us and arrived on the dot to check us out. He left us his cell phone number with instructions to call with any problems or questions (there were none). He speaks excellent English.

Could Not be Better

  • 5 of 5
Stayed for three weeks. The apartment surpassed expectations. In particular, rooms are much larger than the pictures suggest. Ideal combination of higher floor, so that light floods the space and one looks out towards the Pitti Palace and Belvedere from the kitchen over tiled roofs -- yet not having to trudge up a long flight of stairs to get there (unless craving the exercise) as the lift, though small, was consistently reliable.

As others have noted, Francesco has thought of everything and the apartment is well equipped. Much of the time when we thought we needed to purchase supplies, they turned out to already be provided. Also as others have mentioned, there is a vast amount of storage space should it be needed.

The location is peerless, just a few steps from the Ponte Vecchio while free of the hoards of tourists sometimes crowding the bridge, streets and piazzas to the north. Though some of the greatest attractions ARE to the north (though still easily reached by walking) the Oltrarno has its own, including the Pitti Palace, Boboli and Bardini gardens, and "neighborhood" Piazza Santo Spirito which includes some superb, but reasonably priced, dining (try the rissoto at Osteria Santo Spirito to be transported).

If/when returning to Florence, would stay here again -- no question.

It's all true

It's all true

Everything you read in these reviews about this great apartment, the fantastic location, and the personable, helpful Francesco is all real. We can add nothing to what has already been nicely said in all these positive reviews. We loved it; we would come back in an instant; we have recommended it to everyone who asks about our trip.

One recommendation we could add: Turn right after leaving the apartment then take the first right down the alley to the Piazza della Passera. There you will find at least four good restaurants, any one of which would be a good choice to try. But the best thing there is the Gelateria della Passera, which may have the best gelato in Florence. Lots of great, unusual flavors -- try the cream with 7 spices or the chocolate/orange or the mint ....heck, at only one euro per scoop, try them all!

Excellent location, delightful apartment.

  • 4 of 5
I recommend this apartment. It is as advertised. Francesco was very helpful and responsive to emails. It is terrific to have an apartment with the necessary equipment to cook, even a dishwasher! The bed is extra large and reasonably comfortable. The sofa bed is also good. The air conditioning is not strong but helps with the Tuscan heat. There are interesting roof top views from the windows. The location is perfect, away from the tourists but close to Ponte Vecchio and Pitti Palace, good restaurants, gelato stores and a supermarket. Walking distance to all the major sights. And there is a lift - slow and small, but better than three floors of stairs at the end of a long day of touring.
